    thanks for the link dude.
  11. ok i just found this link on the net it is basically like newegg but in the PI

  12. just follow my part guide line it the above on the link i gave you and you should be ok some parts on the site are cheaper so you might get more for your money if you got any Q just message me ill help as much as i can.
  13. there's a 13,000 Php (approx. 317$) in my place. i3-3220. 4gb ddr3 ram. 600w power supply. casing included. dvd-rom. keyboard, mouse and speaker already.. you guess i can allot the 200$ - 300$ for monitor and video card? what can you suggest?

    now keep in mind a few things you have to make sure that the power supply has enough connectors pci-e 3.0x16 and that it can fit in your case. plus since the mobo is a cheap one make sure you can put a pcie card on it and it supports the card. which it should but make sure.

    but over all its not to bad.

    get a 1920x1080 monitor 18 inch and a better mouse and you should be set or a budget pc.

    you will be able to play all games on med some on high with lowered fps. just dont go below 30fps on any game you play.
  15. but i would still build it for scratch so you know it will be all capable with each other. just ask the store clerk if it can support what you want to do.
  16. i'm back and my date of purchase is moved to april or may. can someone help me get a decent gaming build which can play BF3 with the sites that are available in the Philippines? Thanks in advance!

    The problem with planning a buy that far in the future is how often prices change. I had a $750 build plotted out last week, got sick and didn't order anything, come back on Monday ready to purchase, and the price had shot up over $100. :fou:

    Your best bet between now and then is to just read up on things, keep an eye on prices, watch for new tech to come out, and ask again closer to when you are ready to buy.
  18. Keep in mind Battlefield 4 is due late this year and it is sponsored by AMD, meaning it is likely to run better on a Radeon card. So for 500-600 dollars You wanted a PC with a copy of windows 7 I assume? I won't include a keyboard and mouse, but keep in mind that a gaming mouse can REALLY help.
    I went a little over budget but I included a copy of windows 7 and a graphics card that will happily run bf3 and bf4 :)
